Annual Filial Piety Celebration (Cheow Thor)

A Majestic Dragon-Shaped Joss Paper Ship (Say Hong Chun) will be sending off the departed to the Buddha Pure Land during the Filial Piety Celebration.
” Our religious advisor Venerable Seck Chin Sooi together with other monks and nuns will conduct special day-long chanting and prayers on the day itself before it is burnt.”
The festival is held during the seventh lunar month which, is popularly known as the Hungry Ghost Month.
It is known among the Buddhists as Ullambana which means `deliverance from suffering` in Sanskrit.
During the Celebration,there will be offerings of ritualistic food, burning of incense and joss paper for the visiting spirits of departed ancestors.
